    My ten year old can manage to get the your/you're correct most of the time. I reminded him the other day with the difference between:

    Knowing your sh*t and
    Knowing you're sh*t

    Nothing like a swear word to motivate a ten year old boy.

    The sad part isn't that someone would get this tattoo, it's that some idiot would put it on there!

    With practice/practise, I use this one... Do you remember the show "A Country Practice"? (I might be showing my age here!)

    It was about a doctors' practice in the country. When I was learning how to spell the two words, I just remembered that "country" started with "C", and that was the correct letter to use in "practice" too. Or that there were no "Ss" in the show's title, only "Cs".

    I hope that's not too obscure
    Oh.my.
    I always knew you were a genius! This has totes confirmed.

    This thread has made me LOL so much. Brilliant!

    Bahahahahahaha! I am ROFL!!!
    We married the same man!!

    I received an email from DS's childcare this week. In the subject was 'letter to famalies'. Now surely the word families is one which is written, typed and spoken many times each day at a large childcare facility.

    Opened it up to read about some of the carers moving on, changing days etc etc and about three new carers starting. The letter read along the lines of 'we wish A, B and C a warm welcome in their perspective rooms'...

    Scary. These people refer to themselves as educators...
